On tap in a pint glass at the brewpub on 7/21/12

A) Pours a dark, rusty/crimson brown; dense appearance. One half finger head thins to a soapy layer. Some drippy lace.

S) The aroma has strong notes of floral hops, sweet bread and caramel. Milder hop overtones of citrus and pine. Full, resinous aroma. Smells pretty good.

T) While exhibiting a balance in the aroma, the taste has much more focus on the hops here there is a showing of pine and citric pepperings. Toasted bread and caramel; somehow this beer manages to stay rather dry.

M) Medium-plus feel; it is resinous and oily. Puffy, rolling carbonation.

D) Overall, ROD is maltier than I prefer. That said, it has full flavor and is not lacking in feel. I appreciate that in the style.
